A 50-year-old Washington man was sentenced to more than three years in prison Wednesday for his role in a 2010 bank fraud scheme that led to almost $1.4 million being siphoned from a Baltimore Housing Authority account, prosecutors said.
Keith Eugene Daughtry was also ordered to pay restitution of $1,399,700 in addition to his 41-month prison sentence and five years of supervised release, according to the office of U.S. AttorneyRod J. Rosenstein.
Daughtry pleaded guilty in February to allowing his fellow conspirators to use his identity to set up a company that hid the stolen money, and to spending some of the money himself, prosecutors said.
Another man in the conspiracy had access to the authority's account because he was a landlord in one of its Section 8 housing programs, giving him bank transfer privileges, agency officials have said.
Daughtry withdrew more than $38,000 from the fraudulent account between August and September of 2009, prosecutors said.
